Federal judge Amos Mazzant has granted a request by the NFL Players Association for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to prevent the implementation of a six game suspension for Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. Elliott was already eligible to play in Sunday’s season opener against the New York Giants, but his suspension for violating the league’s personal conduct policy was to begin Monday. With the injunction granted, Elliott likely will be able to continue playing as the legal process plays out. If the request had been denied, Elliott would have been able to appeal to the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to ask for an immediate stay.
What happened exactly? On August 11, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced Elliott’s six game suspension after the league found that he had inflicted physical harm on former girlfriend Tiffany Thompson in July of 2016. Elliott has denied the claims. Authorities in Columbus (where the alleged incident took place) did not pursue charges against Elliott, but the league policy on personal conduct has a lower burden of proof threshold than a criminal conviction. Goodell worked with a four-person advisory committee to determine whether Elliott deserved to be punished. However, it was revealed that there were some issues with Thompson’s credibility and would not have recommended discipline for Elliott based on what was found.

The NFL regular season is set to kick off on September 7, with the New England Patriots taking on the Kansas City Chiefs. With another injury filled preseason, how will things play out? Check out the predictions below to see how your team stacks up.
It won’t be easy, but it’s likely that the New England Patriots will get another division title this year. The first loss for the Patriots could be seen very early on in the season. Against the New Orleans Saints. Why? Well, it will be a road game for them, and it is thought that the Patriots might have some defense struggles early on in the season. The second loss is likely to come against the Oakland Raiders later in the season. They will be playing Oakland in Mexico City. The Raiders will be coming off a bye week, which could be the deciding factor in this match up. The other two predicted losses are thought to be against the Miami Dolphins and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Over all, not a bad season anticipated for the Patriots, but they will have some competition.
